Well...just throwing this out there...

What would you guys be willing to pay for this original door off Big Willy's Daytona? It's just a cool piece of history that I wouldn't mind hanging in our bar/hobby room. A buddy of mine has it and he's probably willing to let it go, but is requiring an offer from me. Yeah, I know, it's worth whatever it's worth. Just looking for some opinions on what you guys would be willing to pay for wall art.  shruggy

With no signature or documentation, $100.  another door off a used car, and priced as such.

No insult however I think $100 dollars is a rather weak offer, heck a good charger door should bring at least double that.
My thought is it is worth around $500 how you get there with haggling back and forth remains to be seen by someone.

I'd have to agree, just a used door, $100 as it's probably just a shell, I never could understand the fascination with the autograph/memorabilia/graffiti "thing" on cars or car parts... scratchchin shruggy

Looks to be a Clean and Rust free Charger door.  It's funny that people say it's worth $100 but these same people would never sell a clean rust free door shell for $100.   AMD door shells sell for $700 and I've seen good clean original charger doors shells sell for $400-$500.  It will always be worth what a Clean and Rust free Charger door is worth and it's an added bonus if it's worth little more for the history.

I was thinking up to $1000. $100 is a steal, authenticated or not.

So this is a door off the car that was in the American Racing Wheels ad in Car Craft in October 1970. Is that correct??

Agree completely.   How do you put a price on a 1 of 1 item?      I realize Big Willie is not Richard Petty.   But he has a legacy and a following, especially to someone who might have met him.   Short of buying the complete car, what other Big Willie memorabilia is out there?   There are enough photos of the car before restoration to document that door.    

Last time I checked, the diecast models of BW's cars were selling for more than $100.

It was restored to the lettered up "race configuration".

I asked the same question about the door being separated from the car.     Had it been used, the original lettering would be gone.   I guess someone wanted a souvenir.

Im not sure what to think anymore, at the last mopar show I went to someone wanted $450 for an original Tuff wheel, so going off that I think 500 for an entire door with cool history seems pretty reasonable for an art piece.

Personally, I would top out at 250. Coolness aside the fact of the matter is it would probably get hung up and collect dust until someone else offered me money for it. Im still trying to expand my tool inventory so the garage-art funds are limited. Very neat piece though, thanks for posting pictures and good luck!

Doug, you're exactly correct! The door was kept as a souvenir since the original lettering was going to be lost during the restoration.

Now that makes even less sense.

I could understand there being value if the car didn't exist anymore, but it does, and it's been fully restored.

While the door may "look good", in person it may have been junk? hence the wall art, as wall art is usually just that; junk,  ...as far as the actual car, it was so rotted, not much of the original vehicle remained anyway, but at least is was recreated...

While I appreciate everyone's input about price, it wasn't my intent to 'rile up the crowd' on what was or should have been done to the car. It was made clear to me that the door in question, which is in great shape by the way, was retained so the artist not only had a paper stencil to use when re-producing the graphics, but also the physical 'original' sitting next to him while he was hand lettering the doors. In the cars defense, I would have a hard time calling it 'rotted' or 'recreated'. Yes, the rear window plug area created some challenges, but the car to this day retains it's original nose, fenders, inner fenders, doors(well...at least one of them), all frame rails, floor pans, rear quarters, tail panel and roof skin. A section of the rear floor pan was replaced where the pinion snubber decided to make an appearance into the back seat. As expected, the car saw a replacement trunk pan as well. Both quarters received patches for and aft of the rear wheel openings. Call it what you will, I believe everyone on this forum will agree...it's a COOL car!  yesnod

Interesting?... French said he tossed one of the doors because it was so badly rusted, yet this door/wall art in question is supposedly in "great shape by the way", so I can't see it still having an original door on it?, I know the original fiberglass hood (French substituted a steel replacement) and glass trunk were replaced along with the repairs you mentioned, IIRC the firewall was also cut up on this car ?  

But on the same note, the late Jack McGaughey (wingcarfab.com) contacted me around 2011/12 and said he was going to be building a nose and front lower valance and possibly a rear plug for the Big Willie Daytona (whether he was rebuilding the originals, or making repros I don't know/recall) and needed a set of Z bars for the nose, I ended up selling Jack 2 sets of my repro Z bars, supposedly to be used on the Big Willie Tona' and another customers car Jack was working on

I agree, it's a cool car, and Big Willie was a righteous fellow, but I still wouldn't pay no more than $100 for that door, and it would have to be usable  icon_smile_big

The truth in any WIW type thread will be what someone, maybe just one person is willing to pay - if they step up & actually pay it.

That said, when I ask WIW in a thread of my own, I usually toss the lowest & highest number out the door & average the rest to get a general idea.

Then I price it lower, whatever the item may be & sometimes (but not always by a long shot) the item sells.

Everyone may have an opinion, but not everyone with an opinion has money they are willing to pay. scratchchin
